UPDATE: When & Stranger Calls DVD Details


UPDATED: Artwork has been added. SONY sent over the complete low down for When A Stranger Calls and since it has not been posted yet figure I better. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will explore every babysitter’s worst nightmare with the release of When a Stranger Calls on DVD and for PSP™ May 16.  Camilla Belle (The Ballad of Jack and Rose, The Lost World: Jurassic Park) stars as a high school babysitter terrorized by ominous phone calls in this remake of Fred Walton’s 1979 classic fright film.  Directed by Simon West (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Con Air), the suspenseful thriller also stars Brian Geraghty (Jarhead), Tommy Flanagan (Gladiator, Sin City, Braveheart) and David Denman (Big Fish, The Replacements, TV’s “The Office”) and will be available on DVD and for PSP for an SRP of $28.95.    

When a Stranger Calls was an immediate hit, securing the number one spot on opening weekend and delivering close to $50 million at the box office.  Produced by John Davis (Flight of the Phoenix, Alien vs. Predator), Ken Lemberger (upcoming All the King's Men), Wyck Godfrey (Behind Enemy Lines) and executive produced by Paddy Cullen (True Lies, My Best Friend’s Wedding), When a Stranger Calls is a must-have DVD for horror fans and is loaded with heart-pounding extras including deleted scenes, a behind-the-scenes featurette, and commentary from Director Simon West (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) and actress Camilla Belle.

When a Stranger Calls takes place a hundred miles away from the scene of a murder in small town America where high school student Jill Johnson (Belle) settles in for a routine night of babysitting.  With the children asleep and a beautiful home to explore, she locks the door and sets the alarm.  But when a series of eerie phone calls from a stranger (Flanagan) insisting she “check the children” turns the perfect babysitting job into a 16-year-old’s worst nightmare, Jill begins to panic.  Fear escalates to terror when she has the calls traced and learns the calls are coming from inside the house.

When a Stranger Calls will be available in widescreen presentation and has a run time of 87 minutes. The film is rated PG-13 for intense terror, violence and some language.
